Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced stabbing victim lawyer. Bobby often represents victims of stabbings and shootings victims in the state of California. During a recent discussion, he emphasized when a property owner could be held liable for stabbings.
"Property owners have a legal duty of care to offer a reasonably safe environment for both their workers and guests. Fairgrounds and other event venues are not exempt from this obligation. In fact, they are responsible for maintaining the safety of their property from preventable dangers that may include stabbings and shootings during special events. It is important that they offer sufficient lighting and ample security personnel."
"Too often, stabbings are able to occur due to inadequate security or another form of negligence. If the property owner was aware of an increase in violence but failed to make adequate security improvements, such as hiring additional security guards and conducting weapons checks, the owner could be considered negligent. In such cases, victims and their families may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the negligent property owner.
